Table Of Contents Connecting Monetate with CoreMedia Content Cloud

To connect CoreMedia Content Cloud with the Monetate system, you have to connect the CAE and Studio backend with Monetate and configure each site that should use the Monetate connection.

Configuring the Connection

To connect CoreMedia Content Cloud with the Monetate system, proceed as follows:

  1. Create an RSA key pair, for example, with openssl.

  2. Open the Monetate portal and navigate to Account SettingsSitesAPIKeys. and create a new API user.

  3. Add the newly generated public key to the API user.

  4. Configure the connection in the file in p23n-adapter-monetate-lib/src/main/resources/META-INF. There, you will find a description of the properties. An example configuration would look as follows:

Excluding Experiences from Studio

In Section, “Creating Experiences in Monetate” you will learn how to create experiences in Monetate. However, not all experiences in the Monetate system are applicable for use with a CoreMedia Monetate Experience content item, for example, experiences used for segmentation, the 'Final' experience (see Section, “Creating Experience for Content Masking”), which only serves a technical function, and experiences that don't target content (changing layout, for example). These experiences should be hidden from the Studio user and be not selectable in the experience drop-down list.

For this use case, you can apply the properties monetate.connectors[n].filterMode and monetate.connectors[n].filterExpressions[n] as shown in Section “Configuring the Connection”

Configuring the Site

To connect a site with the Monetate system, you have to create a Settings content item and link to it from the root page of the site. In the Settings content item set the following properties:
